to be lower than his first. president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005 drew up to 500,000 people.>> it may be sot before we get the official estimate of the crowd here, certainly not 1.8 million who were here in 2009, but estimates before the inauguration ranged from 600,000 to 800,000 but what we can report to you is that there were a lot of americans in the national mall today who were overjoyed to witness history, inauguration of any president is a remarkable moment in american history. and they were there today, many of them with their children to see these events. the president was inaugurated of course under the -- in the shadow i probably should say, the capitol dome. a fascinating thing about the dome of the capitol, this year is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the capitol dome. something that was mentioned today during the president's inauguration. here is a look at the dome as it was under construction during the civil war. now, when the civil war broke out so much cast iron was being used in building the dome and it was piled up all around the construction

. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere of george w. bush in his first term. it was chilly and cold. >> the joint committee will do their best to warm it up at the inaugural luncheon where the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plan
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil

that history has not been kind to presidential incumbents. >> second terms have been tough. george w. bush left with the economy melting down and the lowest approval ratings practically in history for a president. bill clinton was impeached. richard nixon resigned his office. >> reporter: american university historian dr. allan lichtman says president obama must use the power of the people to sway congress and it appears that will be part of the inaugural address. >> he's going to talk about our political system doesn't require to us resolve all our disputes or political difference, but it does require us to seek chop ground when it can and should exist. -- common ground when it can and should exist. he's going to make that point very strongly. >> reporter: a new public opinion group will be made for public action. >> we want to make that there is people out there pushing for action. >> reporter: tax reform, entitlement, jobs and spending among the top issues for americans. gun control, climate change and international affairs are also on the agenda. you really don't have four years now. it
them. >> and by the way his approval rating was right where george w. bush's was starting hicks second turn and below bill clinton, and 51%. and he said i'm going to close gitmo, that did not work out his way and almost everybody said it would be impossible to close because we've got a problem, we have nowhere to put those people. >> he said he'd close it in the first year. >> the first thing he signed. >> absolutely. the left plank after he didn't do it the first year, he'll do it the second year and the third year and the fourth year. >> harder when he's a candidate to an achieve. the economy, they said if they passed the massive unemployment, it'd keep under 8%, it was spiked up to 10% and down to 7.8 and they say it's a fail. and killed osama bin laden, and passed health care, what kind of program we'll be we're only getting it now, it passed two years ago. >> alisyn: and iraq, promised to end iraq and making steps towards that as well. >> iraq and afghanistan. >> although unemployment continues to be a problem. i read this morning one more person unemployed, manti te'o's imagery g

,000 attended president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005. to accommodate visitors and make money, official inaugural shops are selling all kinds of memorabilia, and luxury hotels such as the willard intercontinental have been advertising specialty packages, including "the oval suites" for $5,700 a night. the capitol has been readied over the last weeks and months. not much is left to chance. over 13,000 military have been game-planning the parade, traffic, crowd control since the summer. >> we have rehearsal of concept drills-- r.o.c. drills-- that we bring out a large map, and go through each individual stage and break it down in timeline with locations. and each section that has a responsibility goes through their portion and says exactly when they will be in specific situations. if you can imagine when you've seen old war movies, they've had a table top with all these moving pieces-- this is the exact same thing. >> the mac is responsible for getting information out. >> suarez: at this secret government operations center in the washington suburbs, representatives of some 50 ag
of where george w. bush was in 2005 but seven points behind bill clinton. >> ronald reagan had the same rating as bill clinton at 62% and richard nixon was down to 51% in 1973. both lyndon johnson and dwight eisenhower topped everyone here, they reached the low 70s. they were at 71% and 73% respentively. >> that's pretty impressive. >> those numbers would never exit tod exist today. >>> thousands of people are starting to descend this morning. >> never too early to get ready. this morning, though, we'll look past the oath of office to the next four years. the issues, the plans, the prospects. as joe johns reports, some of the most notorious scandals also happened in the second term. >> reporter: president obama has high hopes for the next four years. >> i intend to carry out the agenda that i campaigned on. >> reporter: if he wants to reach that goal, history says a second-term president has got to move fast. >> power does seep away from the presidency very quickly in the second term. >> second term presidents and their congresses have two different clocks and the president's clock is n
about george w. bush's second inaugural address when he said i want to liberate all people all over the world, and even conservatives thought are you nuts, are you crazy? you can't do that. yesterday obama talked about really liberties at home, both in terms of gay rights and in terms of health care and in terms of the power to do good, the power to make good, the power to be something. that was a much more narrow vision, and one he said we won't get done all in one fail swoop. to me this was the obama we really hadn't seen, and i think a good indication of where he is heading. >> it was a domestic address. we did talk about -- he did talk about ending wars, but really the focus was on domestic rights, domestic advancement. >> the one thing he didn't talk about, which, of course, the campaign was based on, was the economy and jobs. right? this was an address that really was very aspirational in many moments, and especially talking about equal rights, and at the same time i think there are a lot of americans out there saying right, but what i'm really concerned about right now is whe
going through what happened with president george w. bush with the iraq war and president clinton with his personal indiscretion with 3407b monica lieu win aewinskylewinsk. why have presidents struggled so much in a second term? >> i think we have to look at the percentages, erin. to get to the second term you probably did pretty well in your first term, right? over the course of eight years it's not that unusual for a president to stupble or have a problem. so i think we've got to look at presidents over the whole eight years and get away from this second term curse. >> familiarity does breed contempt. we're not on too much. george washington had a lousy second term relatively speaking. he was the father of his country. no parties, unanimous choice of the american people. we don't like to talk about it, but people were taking a lot of potshots at him in the second term because that's when the jeffersonian republican party emerged. it was a tough time. he wanted to quit after his first term. they wouldn't let him, and he was sorry he hadn't. >> and they just throw things at him. t
impeach him because he had executive orders. i can just say this? papa bush, george h.w. bush had an executive order that stopped the imports of assault weapons. that was back, if i'm not mistaken in 1989. so don't tell me executive orders is just an obama thing, it's not. let's go the substance of this thing. would it have stopped the heinous tragic crime? is it dealing with the mental illness? is it dealing with the cultural issues? >> clearly, larry, you're absolutely right the president does have the power of the executive order. let's see the president use that power not only to issue executive orders but also as the thought leader in the country really to bring focus on what is the common factor in all of these dreadful things. i'm a mother, i'm a doctor. it's unimaginable and unthinkable and that is deviant behavior. these are criminal minds perpetrating these crimes. we need to have an effective approach to that problem. guns are inas a nm-- inanimate . >> family break up. the fact that there's no faith or heaven forbid prayer in elementary school. is there enough of that
with fellow texan george w. bush but it could have meant that he didn't have to end up in the oprah chair at this point. and that's sat because a lot of people in my family who would have been willing to love lance armstrong no matter what because of the work he did on cancer, it was very painful to see last night, not because he cheated, but because he didn't quite get the equation of what he meant to people. and if he did, it's not only that he wouldn't have acted this way in the last several years, he would never have responded to the questions like he did last night. >> we're going to be watching part two on this interview with lance armstrong. now that he's come clean, could he face criminal charges for coming clean? we're going to take a look at what could be next for lance armstrong. >>> and after last night's interview, live strong gave the following statement. we at the live strong foundation are disappoint by the news that lance armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, even us. in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to lance as a sur
is effectively following the policy that george w. bush did beforeha beforehand. going forward, i think israelis -- on the he them will say can they do this? i tend to subscribe to the view that a healthy relationship between them and the u.s. is going to have to be fungal. but i also agree with the view that obama is unlikely to take that action in the near term 37. >> david, last question. speaking of north africa, while we've got you, the latest on the algerian situation seems -- the information still is becoming to us not this any real sort of clarified way. what happens now? do you think president obama will have to address a new approach to africa? >> the u.s. has been building in north africa for at least a decade, in toerchls trying to build up the ministry of mali, particularly the algerian army doesn't heed to a -- yeah, that's for sure. it could be weeks, months, years. thank you so much both for your time. stay with us. straight ahead, we'll have a look at travel casts across the continent. we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ int

h.w. bush did with speaker jim wright back in 1989. it's just an honoring day, unifying day. you can make the case but do it in a magnanimous way. >> i was going to say, congressman, sometimes i wonder if words matter at all at this point given the climate in washington, d.c. i only say this because i'm trying to at the same time look at the criticism of the exact same speech, the conservative group americans for prosperity called this a harshly ideological aggressively partisan speech more appropriate for the campaign trail. his address reads like a liberal laundry list while at the same time scott peaters, a democrat, said this is a call to action and we have the ability to work together. bernie sanders saying it's inspiring in its basic theme that we work together. i don't get it. you people who all do the same job, i understand partisanship, i just don't understand hyper partisanship. >> yeah, there's no place for hyperpartisanship. there are honest positions. the country is divided. even though the president won a big victory, he still got only 51, 52% of the vote. there is stil
to president george w. bush fran townsend joins us now. welcome, fran. >> hi. >> we understand the united states has a plane in algeria and it's transporting americans and other westerners out of the country, some of those people are injured. do you know anything about this operation? >> no, carol. but, you know, what we're hearing is that the algerians couldn't coordinate with any of the foreign governments that had hostages on the ground. it's not all that surprising. it's not the way you want it to go if you're the american president or the british prime minister, but they acted very quickly, very swiftly, and very strongly with the lots of force. you know, you worry, that's the first question that comes to mind of those unaccounted for. there will be those who were killed in this operation, you know, not just bad guys, but inevitably when you launch this kind of military assault with this many people involved, you they never came. and for most of my career, there wasn't that much of that, two things changed. >> there wasn't that much of what? >> there wasn't that much out of competiti
. here's what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office. it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> andy card also told me he was one of those republicans, although he didn't support president obama, he was very excited for historic reasons about his inauguration back in 2009. i have spoken to a number of republicans over the past few days about the excitement of the inauguration. they all said they will be very respectful and that it is a great celebration of american democracy, tomorrow, noon, here outside the west front of the capital. >> it is an amazing thing we do in this country. john roberts, thank you. >> reporter: you bet. >>> now to other news breaking, in fact. five al-qaeda linked militants have reportedly been captured alive at the scene of that bloody hostage standoff at a gas plant in algeria. hundreds of hostages were rescued, but at least 23 workers we're told at the complex were killed includi
a cascade of problems. >> joe hag began remembers his first glitch. january 2001 just after george w. bush's swearing in. hag began is in a motorcade. >> turned down military avenue and the aifd in the front seat of the car turned around and said, sir, there's a gas being mask under your seat, get ready to put it on. that was a little startling. >> that was to protect as possible teargassing from protesters. summits, secret president trips to war zones, inauguration. as we looked at the buildings president obama will pass, the secret service, the lead security agency for the inauguration, will make sure the buildings are clear of potential snipers. elsewhere, manhole covers will be welded shot. s.w.a.t. teams will be deployed all over the city. plain-clothed law enforcement officers mingling in the crowds. teams teams. >> our dive team will be working around the clock. >> reporter: that fbi official spoke with us where security teams will do real-time monitoring of surveillance cameras posted on buildings and roads. they will share tips and incident reports. with all of the checkpoints, mo
of staff for president george w. bush and the 41st president of the united states, texas a & m university, mr. andy card joins us. as chief of staff, you have to set an agenda for the president. what is the challenge with the second term as opposed to the first? >> first of all, today is a day of celebration. yesterday was as well. but today will be the real public day of celebration and i'll be celebrating it, too. president obama is my president, too. i look forward to him taking the oath of office. i want to hear that inaugural speech. but i can tell you, there is going to be a lot of heavy lifting that has to take place in order for the president to be success envelope a second term. that's when the blues start to set in, when you realize how tough the job is and it's not just about the issues that you can anticipate meeting. it's the ones that you don't anticipate that you have to meet. and so i hope he moves from being an i president. he was very much an i president during his first term. i, i, i, i, i. the second term had better be a we. i'm not talking about a campaign slogan. yes
